Browns Zero In On Sanchez, Crabtree
Am I just being paranoid, or was Mark Sanchez projected to make it into the top 10 two weeks ago only if S.F. took him with the 10th pick?
But then Danny Snyder started salivating and exhibiting the poker face of a little kid in a candy store, and suddenly every team that was crying about how hard it is to trade down from the top ten is all like "WE'RE TAKING SANCHEZ!1!
Item: The Seahawks have joined the Browns in making Sanchez noises.
Friday night, guests at DC's hot spot IL MULINO NEW YORK on Vermont Ave. were in awe to see USC Quarterback Mark Sanchez, Redskins Owner Dan Snyder, Executive VP Vinny Cerrato, Head Coach Jim Zorn, and the Skins QB Coach. They began their evening by first enjoying some drinks outside on the patio, then all ventured inside to dine. With the NFL DRAFT upon us, they held their secret meeting in the Private Room in the back of the restaurant. The 6'3", 225 lb. Trojan from Mission Viejo, CA dined on a PASTA TRIO and a 16oz VEAL CHOP. He definitely cleaned his plate!!
Question: Could this clown be any less subtle? If this were a poker game, Danny would walk in wearing a ten-gallon hat that said "I'm The Mark!" on it, and it wouldn't be because he was trying to fake anyone out.
Question: Will Danny be stupid enough to trade a 1st this year and next year to get a pick that he wouldn't even need to draft Sanchez if he only had a lick of common sense?

Sanchez makes it thru #6, #7, #8, and Jacksonville almost takes him.... but they don't as they need an immediate upgrade on defense and Del Rio needs to win NOW not 2-3 years down the road. So......
Washington trades their #13 pick and a 2010 2nd round pick to the Green Bay Packers for their #9 pick, and a 2010 7th round pick.
Washington Selects QB Mark Sanchez, USC
Packers GM Ted Thompson later trades the #13 pick away for two 2nd rounders and a 5th rounder, later trades those two 2nd rounders and turns 'em into five 3rd round picks to go along with the two 3rd rounders he already has so no picks on day one, but 7 picks in round 3 on Sunday's Day Two when hardly anyone is still watching.

That's a bold prediction, but I like it. Either the #8 spot or #9 spot are prime time trading territory for a desparate team to leapfrog Buffalo and reach for one of the two remaining left tackles or what you've stated above. If all things are equal on Ted Thompson's board I can see him moving down a few spots where the value (on his board) was equal to that of #9.
Only way Cleveland drafts Sanchez is they trade Brady Quinn before the draft.
The thing that makes me skeptical about the Quinn trade is I that thought Washington was the most likely candidate to be interested in giving up a first round pick for Quinn. With all their talk about going after Sanchez I don't know why they'd want to facilitate a trade that would take him off the board at 5. Maybe someone else wants him, though.
I am not sure what the Redskins are trying to do but I am just happy that he is not my GM.
The Redskins are out of control with the way they are handling things. Snyder has completely lost his marbles when it comes to decisionmaking. Quinn and Braylon could be traded before the draft, and if that happens, I think Crabtree will go to the Browns. If they lose Braylon, Winslow and Stallworth, they would more desperatley need a wideout...
...With the first pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns select Sam Bradford, Quarterback, Oklahoma.
